All performers are welcome to participate in this event that has produced some of our brightest performers, including: Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS! One unique aspect of our Open Mic is that, unlike those held in noisy bars where people show up in spite of the fact that there's live music, you will be playing to a supportive group of friends and performers who are actually listening!!!

While he weaves a powerful spell on albums like his latest, How to Rob a Bank, Willy is even better in concert, where he is relentlessly entertaining, drawing listeners in with his nimble-witted stage patter and his mesmerizing musical balance between muscle and intimacy.
